02-05-2022

In Mid-April works commenced on damaging alteratiions to the Road verges along the shore road of Loch Morlich.  The Badenoch and Strahspey Conservation  Group and The Cairngorms Campaiign sent a joint letter to the Highland Council requesting an urgent suspension of the works which had already cuased considerable damage to the verges adjacent to a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) as well as a Speciual Protection Area (SPA) and a National Scenic Area (NSA).  photos The initial reponse from the Highland Coouncil was that the works were carried out under permitted development rights and that there were no planning considerations.  A further joint letter was sent refuting thts view and requesting written confirmation of the suspension of the works. The works have now been halted and further information from the planners and the HC roads department is awaited.
